## A2-21: MAGNETIC VECTOR BOARD

• ID Code: A2-21
• Purpose: Demonstrate properties of vectors
• Description:

Various lengths of magnetic vectors can be affixed in arbitrary positions to a magnetic board. The lengths of the three longer vectors are in the ratio 3:4:5, so that they can form a right triangle. Illustrate vector addition, subtraction, motion of vectors, and commutative properties.

Note:This board is for use in smaller classrooms; chalkboards provide magnetic base in lecture halls (Demonstration A2-22).
